Last month my kids had hand, food, and mouth disease and it was a struggle to keep them home and somewhat entertained for the time that they were contagious.

Currently my one-year-old is battling some congestion/runny nose/slight fever/teeth coming in type of illness that has had us up for hours the past several nights.

Here are some helpful tips to keep your kids entertained and keep your sanity when you have sick kids… [Read more…]

If the time listed under each item says “Prime Early Access Deal,” then it is only available to Amazon Prime members at that time. Others have to wait a half an hour longer before the sale price shows up on their screen. [Read more…]
